21 September 2009: The cases of Hafiz Mohammed Sayeed and Abdul Qadeer Khan are in some ways so strikingly similar that it would be naive to expect sensational revelations about the 26 November 2008 Bombay attack from any interrogation (if at all) of the presently house-arrested Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist leader. Both Khan and Sayeed have been over-willing and able instruments of the Pakistan terrorist state in their respective chosen fields, nuclear weapons and political Islam, but while one lies used, expended and discarded by his principals, and so is willing to squeal against them, the other may well be on that road, but may yet win reprieve. India, at any rate, won't get nothing from Pakistan on Hafiz Sayeed, whether he is a prisoner or a free man, unless it plays its cards right.
